It's the Hunna as special guests that I strongly disagree with. Also Wolf Alice are too low and Fontaines are too big to headline FR

I put them as special guests bc they had their logo on the old lineup and couldn't see them playing in a slot which would have them a logo on the new lineup. They seem the type of band to get pussy if they didn't have their logo on next year haha. I disagree about Fontaine's - amazing band but I reckon they're FR headline level tbh

The year is 2038. We've been back at Reading for several years now. The Wombats have just finished their set, 3rd from the top of main stage on their 20th consecutive year at Reading Festival. Next up

Fontaines are playing Ally Pally and have sold out Manchester Academy twice for their next tour and are playing a bunch of other cities. Way too big for FR imo

Yeah a band isn’t going from 3rd on R1 to headlining arguably the smallest tent excluding the Introducing and having released a class album

Apoligies because a lineup has just been posted but been working on this for a few hours so may as well share.

This is what I could see us ending up with (or very similar). Lower stages aren't fleshed out bc honestly I have no clue lower down.

Would love to hear everyone's thoughts (some acts probs are misplaced tbh)

Doja Cat won’t be subbing, shes lower than DaBaby on the poster so if he’s 3rd then so is she (or lower) but I think it’ll be DaBaby subbing and Doja 3rd

Guessing tickets didn't sell out then even with people stared of festivals and the new 2 stages 6 headliners tag?

Wasn’t going to get close with those headliners. 
 

If anything with the lack of RATM bringing in the 30+ pound, I suspect it will have sold less well than last year. 3 of the ‘headliners’ are subs at best, people can see through the bullshit easy enough

Swapped her with DaBaby then you're probably right. Tbh rap and hip hop isn't my forte so no clue how big each one are haha

Aye you're right. I've put em were Wolf Alice were and moved Wolf Alice to were Sigrid was, in turn moving Sigrid to where As It Is was (binned em off haha). Honestly it's really hard to place acts with 2 mainstages that normally would play R1.

I wasn't sure how it would go considering this is traditionally the 'young team' festival who aren't going to be so worried about COVID. Thought a lot of tickets might carry over and a load of new young uns would rush out to buy tickets as there isn't many gigs on the go at the mo and they'd be looking forward to next year.

Aye I think R/L is gonna do very well next year considering it’s one of the last festivals of the year and so most likely to happen. After this years drought of live music, people will flock to whatever they can next, and Stormzy, Liam and Post Malone are big enough draws to get people to buy tickets to this regardless of the other three headliners (who are just a bit of a bonus).

On a completely unrelated note, Josh Hommes desert Sessions thing is pretty good, thought I’d have a listen and the one with Mike Kerr from Royal Blood is by far my favourite

Nice design mate, do you have the template for this? I'd love to play around with it.

100 Gecs as the Dance Stage headliner is hilariously great but could defo see them heading up the FR stage if it sticks about.

I think your main stage estimates are pretty good besides the Catfish run and I'd just swap Wolf Alice (who could probably even sub) and Charli XCX around.

Personally I think Doja will be at most 3rd down, if you take out Madison Beer and drop her and The Hunna down one (special guest in 4th would make more sense) you've got room for another sub.

I like the additions of Inhaler, Gender Roles + Black Peaks, great bands. Nice job.

Anyone else noticed if you buy a ticket and next years festival gets cancelled you won’t get a full refund in the T&C’s. Sneaky

smh. Genuinely if they just put Rage, Travis and Foals on there, the rest of the lineup could be w*nk and it would still appeal to everyone. I don't understand why they have booked 4 mediocre acts as well as a bunch of other shit. Sorry for my language, but really pissed off about this. As someone who likes rap and rock equally, apart from QOTSA and Post, there is nothing here that would persuade me to shell out 200+ quid. Disappointed. Its lazy and jus boring

They'd book a rapper tho, having two indie headliners in Travis and Foals wouldn't appeal to everyone

I like If You Run and Something You Can't See the best but Chic Tweetz is unironically very good too

Thinking a lot of these mockups seem to be predicting the main stage like they're actual top 5's on a poster, when the lowest will in fact be playing around lunch time. The bands playing that early will still probably be about the same size, not acts like Sports Team.
